Under current US law fines for non criminal infringement can range as high as $150,000.00 USD per infringement. However if the standard for felony criminal copyright infringement is met the fine can reach $250,000.00 per infringement. Additionally in the case of repeat offenses all fines can be doubled.

It varies from country to country. In the US, for example, statutory rates range from $750 to $30,000 per infringement, but most cases are settled long before they reach court for something closer to real damages.

In the United States, anyone found to have infringed a copyrighted work may be liable for statutory damages up to $30,000 for each work infringed and, if willful infringement is proven by the copyright owner, that amount may be increased up to $150,000 for each work infringed. In addition, an infringer of a work may also be liable for the attorney's fees incurred by the copyright owner to enforce his or her rights
